‘I’m sick of demisting windows’ drivers say – before discovering £8.49 gadget which sucks up water for you
DRIVERS are looking for innovative ways to defog their car as winter continues to wreak havoc with our windows.
Drivers have tried all sorts to get rid of the condensation, from kitty litter to towels, but one gadget has become a favourite among fans.
The Pingi Dehumidifier is a small purse-sized bag that attracts the wet air inside the car and prevents it from sticking to the glass.
The dehumidifier is not a motorised unit like you might have at home, instead, the bag holds silica gels that attract the water.
Silica gels are also the little bags that can be found in new items of clothing.
“The moisture absorber is 100% leak proof meaning you will never have to contend with leakage or stains, only a dry interior and gleaming windshields,” claims the online ad.
On Amazon, the dehumidifier sells for £8.49, claiming that it can hold 120ml of water.
As the silica soaks up air water in the air a blue mark on the outside of the bag turns from blue to pink.
But, once the mark is pink and the silica is full someone only has to put it into the microwave to evaporate the water.
“There is no predetermined expiry date on our moisture absorbers and the reusable nature of the dehumidifier bags promises durability and a long life combating condensation.”
Fans of the bag have left plenty of five-star reviews.
“I’ve used this to demist our car now that the cold weather is upon us.. been working wonders,” says one reviewer.
“I’ve weighed it before and after a dry cycle and it’s a 360gram difference, which should be around 360ml of water that is captured from the car and evaporated off in our oven – love it.”
“Bought this dehumidifier bag for my car – was sick of demisting windows every morning,” said another.
“I was having trouble with overnight condensation big time, every morning before I set off had to dry the window with a cloth or wake up to the window with beads running down it. This bag works great and i no longer have to worry in the mornings. Great buy,” said a third.
Meanwhile, a former NASA engineer has found the fastest way to defog your car using only your windows and the heating system.
Mark Rober found four things that people could do to reduce condensation the steamer produced in the car.
Your goal is to make the air inside the car warm and dry so that any water vapor can hang in the air, rather than clinging to the glass.
